Hi, my name is Kenny Frisch and this is my first blog post to the Utah BirdersBlog. I would like to thank them for allowing me to blog on this site.

I watched and listened to the bird singing for about 10 minutes and managed to get a video of it singing. I guess it didn't have a valentine yet. Here is the video I took:
